Ladder 49- Movie Review

Ladder 49 is a movie starring John Travolta as the chief of his station and the mentor of a young firemen while he moves up the ladder. Sorry, that one was just a little too easy to pass up.  I really enjoyed the movie overall, great story, perfect actors chosen to fill the roles, and they did a great job giving a realistic look at some of the things firefighters face on the job and how it can be a strain even at home.

 It's def filled with some intense moments that end in the typical fashion unfortunately. The negative for me was just some of  the predictability, it's still a shock but there are a few main scenes that you just know something is happening soon. 

I'm not going to give away the ending except to say that I think that's the one area they could have been a little more in-depth and really explored the dynamics of what being in this "brotherhood" of firemen, especially ones in the same fire house really means.
